Everything we thought we knew about magic is all wrong. So wrong in fact, that for centuries (as far back as Ancient Egypt), knowledge of magic has been kept guarded and concealed by a group of elders known as "The Council", whose felt that mankind was not responsible enough to know the truth about magic, or their own magical abilities, because they were too easily corrupted by its power.
Not only have we not known the truth about magic, but because we have not stayed connected to this innate part of ourselves, we have also lost our ability to see all the other magical beings that exist here on earth and out in the universe.
If it was not for T.O.D (Time of Disorder), a shady group of villainous operatives, intent on fulfilling an ancient Egyptian prophecy that foretold disorder and chaos ruling supreme, where everything good is turned bad, then we would still not know the truth about magic.
But times have changed, and the ancient prophecy appears to be coming true. The balance of good vs bad has shifted.
T.O.D operatives have figured out how to access the magic contained in ancient artefacts, objects and talismans, and they are using these objects to disrupt the balance and order of things.
To track down these magical artefacts and fix any issues that T.O.A.D agents cause, The Council set up a new organisation THE FAM (Tactical Headquarters of Espionage to Find Artefacts of Magic).
THE FAM have four departments:
M.U.M - Magical Undercover Missions
D.A.D - Dangerous Artefacts Department
N.A.N - New Agents Network
P.A.P.I - Psychological Awareness & Personal Intelligence
Due to the high number of magical artefacts being uncovered by TOD it was decided that new agents needed to be trained and so SPYSQUAD HQ was set up to assist in finding suitable recruits. It is hoped that recruits will be able to identify and track down TOD operatives, as well as learn all about the magic in hopes that balance will be restored.
